This is because company designers will make the best use of the property's design to harvest the greatest amount of energy. The ability to offset electrical use will be even higher than what might be enjoyed from a stock design solar power system.
Solana Beach, CA (PRWEB) January 9, 2009
Owning a solar power system to offset or virtually eliminate your electricity bill is not a luxury for the rich any longer. Sequoia Solar is showing individuals, families, and businesses that they too can enjoy the benefits of solar power at a fraction of the cost of what they might expect.
Solar power has come a long way in the past few decades with companies like Sequoia Solar leading the charge. With the recent pass of the Federal ITC (Investment Tax Credit), a solar power system can now be custom designed and installed for up to 50% total savings, comprised of a 30% Federal Tax Credit and a 20% rebate from the State of California. Despite the recent economic downturn, solar sales are thriving. In fact, Solana Beach based Sequoia Solar has had some great results.
"In my experience," says Sequoia Solar CEO, Marty Reed, "winter is typically a slow time for the solar industry. But at Sequoia Solar, we had a spectacular December. We increased the number of solar systems commissioned by 57% compared to last month, resulting in a more than 100% increase in revenues!"
"Also the efficiency of residential solar power systems has increased," Reed said. "When a solar system is designed by Sequoia for a specific property, its effectiveness will be extremely high," Reed added. "This is because company designers will make the best use of the property's design to harvest the greatest amount of energy. The ability to offset electrical use will be even higher than what might be enjoyed from a stock design solar power system."
"As electric bills climb through the roof and concerns about the use of fossil fuels continue to raise red flags, the time for solar is now," Reed said. "A custom designed system will take full advantage of available incoming power (sunlight) and offer the maximum potential for sparing use of electrical power to meet the needs of an individual household."
Although the use of alternative energy sources like solar in San Diego isn't new in this area, many homeowners remain skeptical about this form of power. However, Sequoia Solar is dedicated to answering any questions and educating their customers about solar power viability, costs and system designs.
Potential system owners are invited to tour Sequoia's own solar powered office building, see its electric car docking station and tour its fully functional solar carport and solar awning. The tour provides a platform for residents to see just how easy and affordable it can be to switch to this cleaner, renewable energy source with home solar systems. The Solana Beach office is open to the public during normal business hours. Inquiring minds are welcome to tour the working solar facility.
"Solar in San Diego is especially beneficial for homeowners because of the availability of this fully renewable energy source," said Reed. "Sunlight is a resource we have no shortage of in the San Diego area. Tapping into this form of power can save homeowners money while enabling them to do their part for the environment."
